Per Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com, the team will make single game tickets available in a matter of weeks:
Individual game tickets for 2012 Lions preseason and regular season games at Ford Field go on sale Tuesday, July 10 at 10 a.m.

The Lions didn’t release single game tickets for sale until August 24 last year. The late release was probably a strategy for getting as many people signed up for season ticket packages as possible. An increase in season ticket sales in 2011 combined with the team’s best season in over a decade probably led to high renewal rates and demand for new season ticket packages heading into the 2012 season. The earlier single game ticket release suggests the Lions are comfortable with their season ticket base and ready to move on to the next phase of ticket sales.
The hot tickets in 2012 figure to be the Thanksgiving game against the Houston Texans, late season tilts with the division rival Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears and the primetime game against the Atlanta Falcons to be played the Saturday before Christmas.
DetroitLions.com is still only showing a seating chart with pricing based on a full season ticket package. SideLion Report published the single game prices back in February based on what went out to season ticket holders in their renewal mailings, check it out here.
